[music playing] CHRISTI: I personally am
very nervous that Abby’s out to replace Chloe. She has made it perfectly
clear that Chloe is not what she views as an
asset to the team, and I think Chloe is one of
the girls she’s out to replace. ABBY LEE MILLER: We will be
traveling to Orlando, Florida. Yay.
[light applause] Brooke, why does
it have to be all the singing or all the dancing? Why can’t it be both? You can do that, but
you have to perform. KELLY: I don’t really want
my kids to be replaced, but if Abby didn’t suck the joy
out of everything Brooke did, maybe she would
perform better for her. And then I have a trio. “See No Evil, Speak No
Evil, Hear No Evil.” [quietly laughing] So Brooke, you’re
going to be lead. Chloe, Paige– you are
her backup dancers. So there’s going to be a
microphone on a stand– an old fashioned radio mic. And you’re going to be in front
of it doing all the stuff. And you two are on
her either side, and you’ll switch back and
forth and so forth and so on. Got it? Yes?
OK. So let’s hear it. Learn the lyrics, because you’re
going to be lip syncing it. This week, the trio
is a jazz number. It’s a take on the
1940s radio hour. This is a huge
opportunity for Brooke. If she wants to be a
singer, she’s going to learn how to work a mic. Hey, hey, hey. Come on, come on, come on. JILL: Oh, it’s it a microphone. CHRISTI: Oh, fun. HOLLY: Girls get a microphone.
It’s a [inaudible]. MOM: I love that. Oh, my god, I want
to get on that thing. MELISSA: That’s
like– oh my god. Jill wants to get on that thing.
HOLLY: We know you do, Jill. Did I say out loud?
HOLLY: Yes. ABBY LEE MILLER: Between
six ears in here, we don’t have one
that can really hear the music correctly. If Brooke wants to be a pop
star, she needs my help. Let’s face it– she
needs everybody’s help. Breathe, breathe, breathe. You can hear
[imitating old radio music].. You can hear that in there.
MOM: Perfect. KELLY: I find it hysterical. Abby feels that desperate that
she has to have something to do with Brooke’s music career– Looks what’s she’s
teaching her– how to sing. – –that she has to teach her–
– –to lip sync. –how to lip sync, that she
is revolving the trio around it. Brooke might not perform
the way Abby wants her to, but that’s the reason
why I don’t have Abby being Brooke’s manager. Because this is something that
Brooke and I want to do the way we want to do it, not the
way Abby wants to do it. [all cheering] ABBY LEE MILLER: Here we
are at the competition. Let’s just think of this as
the ALDC Elite Competition Team’s own audition. They should be nervous, because
somebody could be going home. Oh, I love them. Oh, you guys look cute. They are so cute. MOM: I love them. 1940s. I want to go to a diner
and have my chocolate Coke. KELLY: (QUIETLY) Brooke,
make sure you lip sync. If you don’t know
the words, just sit there and say watermelon.
– Watermelon. I just say watermelon. KELLY: Just move your lips. The three girls in this trio
are Abby’s least-favorite on the team, and she
would want nothing better than for these girls
to go up on stage and fail. And I think that they need
to go out there and show Abby that they can do this. [MUSIC – BADABING BADABOOM,
“POOLSIDE”] (SINGING) Poolside,
it’s cool side. Who’s died? The hippest stage and
new time, moonlight. Poolside is the place to be. Sleazy-jeezy, don’t you see? Poolside is the place to be. Trinidad to Hackensack,
poolside is the place to be. [applause] KELLY: You know, this trio is
something totally different than what Brooke normally does. She usually does
contemporary and contortion. This is totally different,
and she went up on stage and nailed it.
She looked amazing. ANNOUNCER: Now for our
Elite Teen Duo/Trios. Starting off in third place
with a score of 270 points is act number 67,
“It Doesn’t Hurt,” from Robin Dawn Dance Academy. In second place with a
score of 276.6 points, is act number 20, “Hear No Evil,
See No Evil, Speak No Evil,” from the Abby Lee Dance Company. CHRISTI: The trio got
second, and I think that that is a really admirable
thing, but I know it doesn’t matter how well they danced. All Abby cares about
is second place, and isn’t the first to lose? And our kids are on
the chopping block. Chloe, Paige, Brooke– you were the only
dance that wasn’t the overall high score winner. What– what goes on there? My group should be 10 points
above, or my duet or my trio, against anybody else.
